Born in South Korea, Liz lived in Wanganui, New Zealand for several years until her family moved back to Seoul, Korea during her elementary school years. Liz has a B.A. in Special Education from Ewha Womans University and a M.A. in Korean-English Translation from Hankuk University of Foreign Studies' Graduate School of Interpretation and Translation. Despite her personal career plans, God orchestrated her marriage to her husband Tom from across the Pacific. Since then, Tom and Liz have lived in Ann Arbor, MI; San Diego, CA; and Fort Wayne, IN until God brought them to St. Louis, MO. They have three kids, David, Ashley and Rachel. During her 20 years of marriage, Liz has learned to "never say never" and try to live by the phrase "Life is not about you!".
